Allflaws – Manufactured Violence (Lyrics) Written By Gabriel Curran

They take the violence from a culture,
Then sell it to the masses,
Make aggression the new trend,
For the young to consume,
Now everyone is walking it,
And everyone is talking it,
You can hear the devil speaking through the
Mouths of the ignorant,
Coz dumb is now the new cool,
Dumb is now the new school,
Killing intellect, dis-empowering the mind,
It’s the doom generation,
Of violence and hatred,
It’s the feral generation,
Of the 51st state.

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.

Copycats and counterfeits,
Cliches, street talk,
Accents and ghetto slang,
Homogenized language,
Juvenile delinquents,
Are talking borrowed lingo,
With Superficial syntax,
And urban dialectics,
Monotone clones,
Spreading across the nation,
Spawned from the bowls,
Of Americanization.

Ghetto is a fashion,
A white commodity,
Ghetto makes a profit,
For the corporate machine,
Aggression makes a man,
That’s what we’re told,
Aggression makes a man,
That’s what we’re sold.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product,
Manufactured violence, societies regression consumed like a fashion,
Come and buy some violence, hyper masculinity sold as a style.

Poverty tourists,
Gentrifying Babylon,
Poverty tourists,
Tell me where you are really from?

Tell me where you’re really from?
Poverty tourists,
Tell me where you’re really from?
Rude boys,
Tell me where you’re really from?
Baseball caps and trainers,
Tell me where you’re really from?

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product,
Manufactured violence, societies regression consumed like a fashion,
Come and buy some violence, hyper masculinity sold as a style.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.

Allflaws -Acid Face (Lyrics) Written By Gabriel Curran

Smoke filled consciousness, dust filled lungs,
Smouldering fibres laced in thick black tar, 
Gaunt and emaciated with a fetid smile,
Glistening eyes traveling for miles and miles, 
Self aware, detailed stare, look around paranoid glare, 
Etchings in the skin of places we’ve all been, 
Deep and layered, textured flesh, 
Every face has a trace, a twisted map to a hidden place, 
It’s so easy to feel uneasy, the unfamiliar making nerves quiver, 
Accentuated features, cartoon creatures, 
So heavily distorted don’t know what the truth is, 
Need to stay on the level, 
Don’t want to be taken by the demon mind, the demon side, 
Don’t go there, don’t go there, ringing out, the chorus of doubt, 
Shaking the walls of the cerebellum as tinnitus plays his organ, 
It’s the divided spirit the fractured self, 
Broken up and scattered into the realms of ambiguity, 
You’re high but twisted not high as in lifted, 
How can you rest with a head full of flees, 
Scratching your thoughts until they bleed, 
Moving from the boroughs of sanity into the center of psychosis, 
This is the city of paranoid neurosis, 
Sirens, danger, hostile strangers, roaming the streets of your psyche, 
The ones who normally feel close are now wearing black satanic clothes, 
So sinister in their pose and striking in their fear, 
They look strangely unfamiliar and austere, 
As you sit there with a feted mouth full of witches hair, 
So rigid in the numbness as the roaches crawl between the cracks of your consciousness, 
Nestling, multiplying, feeding off your weakness, breeding from your neurosis, 
Aaaaaargh, what am I saying, what am I feeling, 
I can feel my reasoning, weakening and withering in the dusty haze of obscurity, 
Feeling aloof in a land of giants, feeling so small I can only be quite, 
I’m one in a million, billion, zillion lost souls all falling into the same cryptic hole, 
Drowning in the potion, saturated in the chemical confusion, 
Sinking into the toxic gravy, full of rotten bones, perished souls and lost minds, 
Remove me from this but I know it’s too late, it’s too late, 
Coz none of the voices in my head wonna relate, 
Clarity is swamped in a head full of puss, 
Meaning is lost in the septic slush, 
One conversation with a multiple of understandings, 
One ambiguous speech gets twisted by each and every one, 
It’s the schizophrenic rap song as the babbling maniac talks on and on, 
A niggly twitch, mental itch, scratch it away, scratch it away,
It’s the schizophrenic rap song as the babbling maniac talks on and on.

Gotta grin and bare it coz now I wear my acid face.

Allflaws – The Light Never Dies (Lyrics) By Gabriel Curran

There’s always more if one chooses to find
The promise of the world always echoes in the mind
There’s always more hope in a chancers heart
There’s always more stars in a dreamers gaze
The fear keeps coming but the heart keeps winning
The fear keeps coming but the heart keeps winning

I never let it fade
I never let it go
I never let it fade
I’m always holding on

Sinking in the mire with a diamond in my grip
Lying in the gutter with a smile and vice
Floating through the void with a heart full of chance
Roaming in the dark with a pocket full of pipe dreams
The spirit never dies because the heart keeps burning on
The journey never ends because the light keeps shining on

Everything I want to be is laid out in front of me
The path manifests in the silver lining of a cloud

I never let it fade
I never let it go
I never let it fade
I’m always holding on

Walking through the dark with a light in the mind
Shedding fear with every stride
Nothing is out of reach when the third eye is open

Leave it all behind
Leave it all behind
Everything I want to be is laid out in front of me

I never let it fade
I never let it go
I never let it fade
I keep it all in mind
I never let it go
I’m always holding on

Allflaws – When Luna Comes (Lyrics) Written by Gabriel Curran

This world has got me holding on
I can’t free me in this realm
I try and move me when Luna comes
I try and run from all my fear
Nothing ever takes away the pain like the night
It’s time to get away again
Nothing ever takes away the pain like the high
The night it keeps calling me

You know I gotta getaway
I can’t tame me
You know I gotta getaway
You know I gotta getaway
I can’t tame me
You know I gotta getaway

My freedom keeps coming with a dirty vice
Now I’m dwelling in a tainted paradise
The poisons now running through my blood stream
The devil is now feeding on my dopamine
The toxic remedy is taking me, and faking me
And numbing my perception of reality
I’m twisted in the realm of delirium
Wasted in the moonlight, trying to reach my next height
Escaping from the shadow of my former self
Ripping my spirit from its slumber hole
Caught inside the craze of the night abyss
The maverick inside wants to fuck bliss

You know I gotta getaway
I can’t stay here
You know I gotta getaway
You know I gotta getaway
I can’t tame me
You know I gotta getaway

Escaping in the nighttime
Fading when the light comes
Living in the moonshine
Dying in the suns gaze

I need to getaway, find another place
I need to getaway, find another space
I need to getaway, find another place
I need to getaway, find another

I’m trying to getaway from my own prison
I’m lost inside a world of escapism
Caught inside the maze of this wanderlust
The maverick inside wants to fuck bliss

Now I gotta runaway, find the bliss that taints me
Now I gotta runaway, find the joy that scars me
Now I gotta runaway, find the high that blinds me
Now I gotta runaway, find the dream that numbs me

Allflaws – Amrak (Lyrics) Written By Gabriel Curran

These lyrics are about KARMA

The apparitions of yesteryear are coming round full circle,
Doing orbits of your history, winding back your symmetry, 
Your mistakes are carved in their hearts, and your fate is etched from their scars, 
Your treachery is survived by those who bare your marks, 
The watchmen is counting backwards, the now is becoming the past, 
As you slowly sink deeper into the sands of the hour glass, 
Coz time is coming back for you, time is bringing your death, 
As the hands of the clock grip your neck, you take your last breath.

You feel your time is coming,
You’re reaping what you’re sowing,
You hear the devil calling, 
Your mind away.

You spin the Samsaric wheel until Satan strikes you a deal, 
He says, “lower others to raise yourself and true happiness you will feel, 
You think you’re winner, but you’re a sinner, 
Your gain is a flagrant lie, 
Coz the unconscious mind falls blind, and defeats you every time.

Abomination screams your name, 
Luring you to the darker side, 
The ego says go right ahead, 
Posing as your righteous guide, 
You do it all for the fucking high, you do it all for your shallow pride,
But it takes you further down.

The demons that you choose to create, 
Are the demons that seal your fate, 
Cause and affect, karmic vex, 
Now your time is coming next,
Like Aaaagh, Aaaagh, Booom, 
You reap the pain of your own design, 
You manifest your own demise,
Coz now your enemy is your mind.

You feel your time is coming,
You’re reaping what you’re sowing,
You hear the devil calling, 
Your mind away.

Karma comes colossal when you shoot angles from the skies, 
Now the victims of your malevolence will be the judges of your demise, 
The future will be written by the ghosts of your history, 
The ones who suffer your devilry will be the deciders of your destiny.

The fist you throw circles the earth, 
And comes back behind you to deal you a curse, 
Your blow returns on the akashic breeze, 
Your rage comes three sixty degrees.

You know the devil’s calling, 
Your mind away.

You feel your time is coming,
You’re reaping what you’re sowing,
You hear the devil calling, 
Your mind away.

Allflaws – Dopamine Dreams (Lyrics) Written By Gabriel Curran

(Verse 1) taken from Allflaws – Dopamine Dreams

 

Endorphin fiends are having dopamine dreams
Coasting on the rooftops of twilight scenes
Searching for the buzz in the crimson sky
Looking for a short cut to try and get and high
Gotta getaway from the daily malaise
Utopia beckons the slaves from their graves
Trailing in the haze, tripping through the maze
Looking at the stars with a hedonists gaze
Toxic mavericks flirting with the moon
Serotonin spirits born from the tomb
Living for the night, then dying in the light
When the sun comes up, we fall from a height
Grapple with the day when the dark fades away
Listen to the devil when the devil wants to play
Crippled by the glisten of the morning due
Cast into the presence of the fading few.
